The books are great as a way to initiate conversations in ESOL-based classes. The test prep section is absolutely useful in helping students prepare for exams. I recommend using Side by Side Plus as an additional resource material if the main student textbook is grammar-based and lacking in conversational exercises. Overall, my students love it and they demanded we continue using Side by Side Plus for the following semester. I say, if the students are happy and learning English communicatively, I am happy too!
easy to teach from and
easy for students to follow. It has
patterns with some exceptions shown.
The civics lessons are apropos. Most of my students are not acquainted with the material presented. Several of them have lived here for years without becoming naturalized citizens, and it's all "news" to them..
I have used other general textbooks and materials aimed specifically at increasing particular skills such as reading or writing, but this is the best all-around textbook I have used.
i think that this book is really good to learn English but i don't know if this product includes the textbook and the workbook, please can someone who already bought it can help me. Thanks
